Collective Impact Lincoln is requesting proposals for at least two more neighborhood projects it can help fund with mini-grants in late 2019 or early 2020.
The mini-grants, which can be as much as $500, are “a way to connect with your neighborhood and your community to bring about a positive change,” said Nancy Petitto, Civic Nebraska’s Collective Impact Lincoln program manager.
In 2019, Collective Impact Lincoln has awarded mini-grants to community organizations and individuals in the project’s six focus neighborhoods – Belmont, Clinton, Everett, Hartley, Near South, and University Place. Funds are awarded to projects that bring community members together, fulfill a neighborhood need, and have not been done previously.
Collective Impact Lincoln has given out eight mini-grants so far this year.
